Flora (ナースちゃん) is a nurse hamster who appears in some of the Japanese episodes, and cameos in most of the Hamtaro video games. She helps Doctor Lion nurse sick animals back to health.
Flora is a kind and caring nurse hamster. She makes it her mission to cure any animals she sees; be it from sickness, injuries, or anything in between. Flora can rarely catch a break; she is always busy at the veterinary clinic, and puts her job above all else. On occasion, however, Boss and the main girl Ham-Hams will substitute her nursing job, letting Flora have a few much-deserved days off. Stan has a huge crush on her, and she has shown signs of returning his feelings.
Her first appearance, with an early design, was in Hamtaro: Ham-Hams Unite! where she is Doctor Ham's assistant. Her finalized appearance, adding the barrette in her hair, was first seen in Hamuchanzu de Gozaimachu! Vol.2. She also appears in Rainbow Rescue, Ham-Ham Games, and the (now-defunct) Hamtaro iOS app.
Stan often flirts with most girl hamsters he sees, but these minor crushes cannot compare to his love for Flora. He takes an immediate liking to her in Kind Flora and tries repeatedly to impress her, but she is too dedicated to her nursing job to notice. Stan becomes so desparate that he feigns illness to get her to treat him; which ultimately leads to disaster.
In Come on, Stan!, he is determined to receive a Valentine's Day gift from her. He tries again to get her attention, and fakes another sickness. He eventually realizes (after a scolding from Sandy) that he was wrong the whole time. To make up for his actions, he cleans the entire clinic, without Flora's prior permission; which she finds sweet, and gives him a Valentine's Day gift, signaling that she may return some of his affections.

- While her name is officially stated to be Flora in Hamtaro: Rainbow Rescue, her naming in English has been inconsistent; her e-Reader card simply says "Nurse", and the recently produced Valencian-English dub calls her Nāsu-chan. This may imply that the name Flora was officially retconned for unknown reasons.
